The parties agree as follows:
1 ACCOUNTING AND OTHER TERMS
Accounting terms not defined in this Agreement shall be construed following GAAP. Calculations and determinations must be made following GAAP. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings set forth in Section 13. All other terms contained in this Agreement, unless otherwise indicated, shall have the meaning provided by the Code to the extent such terms are defined therein.
2 LOAN AND TERMS OF PAYMENT
2.1 Promise to Pay. Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay Bank the outstanding principal amount of all Credit Extensions and accrued and unpaid interest thereon as and when due in accordance with this Agreement.
2.1.1 Term Loan.
(a) Availability. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Bank agrees to make to Borrower, and Borrower agrees to borrow from Bank, the Term Loan 2012 described below.
(i) Bank agrees to lend $10,000,000 (the “Tranche A”) to Borrower within five (5) days from the Effective Date subject to the satisfaction of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and Borrower agrees to borrow such Tranche A from Bank.
(ii) Borrower and Bank acknowledge and agree that Borrower is obligated to Bank for the “Term Loan” (as that term is used in the Prior Agreement, and which is herein referred to as the “Prior Term Loan”), the principal amount of which was $4,652,192.66 as of April 9, 2012. Borrower authorizes and instructs Bank to apply funds from Tranche A, up to the sum of the unpaid principal balance of the Prior Term Loan plus any and all accrued and unpaid interest on the Prior Term Loan and plus any other amounts that are due with respect to the Prior Term Loan (other than the “Final Payment” as that term is used in the Prior Loan Agreement—said “Final Payment” shall instead become the Final Payment under this Agreement, payable as set forth herein), to such Prior Term Loan principal, interest and other amounts in order to repay the same in full. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that such funds so applied shall be deemed advanced by Bank to Borrower as part of Tranche A.
(iii) Provided that the Tranche B Condition is satisfied as determined by Bank in its good faith business judgment, and subject to the satisfaction of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the Draw Period Bank agrees to lend an additional $10,000,000 (the “Tranche B”) to Borrower, and Borrower in its sole discretion agrees to borrow such Tranche B from Bank. (Tranche A, together with Tranche B if made, shall be collectively referred to as the “Term Loan 2012”.)
(b) Repayment. Borrower shall pay Bank accrued interest on Term Loan 2012 beginning on the first day of the calendar month following the month during which Tranche A is advanced and continuing on the same day of each succeeding month. Borrower shall repay Term Loan 2012 in (i) thirty (30) equal installments of
principal, plus (ii) monthly payments of accrued interest (each combined (i) and (ii) payment, a “Term Loan Payment”). Beginning on April 1, 2013, a Term Loan Payment shall be payable on the first day of each month. Borrower’s final Term Loan Payment, due on September 1, 2015 (the “Term Loan Maturity Date”), shall include all outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under Term Loan 2012, plus the Final Payment, plus all other sums, if any, that shall have become due and payable hereunder with respect to Term Loan 2012. Term Loan 2012 may only be prepaid in accordance with Sections 2.1.1(c) and 2.1.1(d). Once repaid, Term Loan 2012 may not be reborrowed.
(c) Permitted Prepayment. Provided that no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrower shall have the option to prepay all, but not less than all, of the outstanding Term Loan 2012, provided Borrower (i) provides written notice to Bank of Borrower’s election to prepay Term Loan 2012 at least twenty (20) but not more than forty-five (45) days prior to such prepayment, and (ii) pays to Bank, on the date of such prepayment (A) all outstanding principal plus accrued interest of Term Loan 2012, (B) a fee equal to the Make-Whole Premium with respect to the Term Loan 2012, provided that such Make-Whole Premium with respect to the prepayment of Term Loan 2012 shall not be charged if such prepayment is part of a replacement of Term Loan 2012 with a new facility from another division of Bank, (C) the Final Payment, and (D) all other sums, if any, that shall have become due and payable with respect to Term Loan 2012. Without limitation on the fact that the Make-Whole Premium and the Final Payment shall be due on the date of the prepayment, the Make-Whole Premium and the Final Payment shall bear interest from the date due until paid at a rate equal to the highest rate applicable to the Obligations.
(d) Mandatory Prepayment. If all or a portion of Term Loan 2012 becomes due and payable according to the terms hereof because of the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, on the date that it has become due and payable according to the terms hereof Borrower shall pay to Bank, in addition to any other sums owing, a fee equal to the Make-Whole Premium with respect to the amount of Term Loan 2012 that has become due and payable according to the terms hereof because of the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, plus the Final Payment. Without limitation on the fact that the Make-Whole Premium and the Final Payment shall be due as set forth in the preceding sentence, the Make-Whole Premium and the Final Payment shall bear interest from the date due until paid at a rate equal to the highest rate applicable to the Obligations.
2.3 Payment of Interest on the Credit Extensions.
(a) Interest Rate.
(i) Term Loan. Subject to Section 2.3(b), the principal amount outstanding under Term Loan 2012 shall accrue interest at a fixed per annum rate equal to eight percent (8%), which interest shall be payable monthly.
(b) Default Rate. Immediately upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Obligations shall bear interest at a rate per annum which is five percentage points (5.00%) above the rate that is otherwise applicable thereto (the “Default Rate”) unless Bank otherwise elects from time to time in its sole discretion to impose a smaller increase. Fees and expenses which are required to be paid by Borrower pursuant to the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, Bank Expenses) but are not paid when due shall bear interest until paid at a rate equal to the highest rate applicable to the Obligations. Payment or acceptance of the increased interest rate provided in this Section 2.3(b) is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of Bank.
(d) Computation; 360-Day Year. In computing interest, the date of the making of any Credit Extension shall be included and the date of payment shall be excluded; provided, however, that if any Credit Extension is repaid on the same day on which it is made, such day shall be included in computing interest on such Credit Extension. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed.
(e) Debit of Accounts. Bank may debit any of Borrower’s deposit accounts, including the Designated Deposit Account, for principal and interest payments or any other amounts Borrower owes Bank when due. These debits shall not constitute a set-off.
(f) Interest Payment Date. Unless otherwise provided, interest is payable monthly, in arrears, on the first calendar day of each month.
2.4 Fees and Bank Expenses. Borrower shall pay to Bank:
(a) Commitment Fee. A fully earned, non-refundable commitment fee of $50,000 on the Effective Date and of $50,000 on the Funding Date of Tranche B;
(b) Make-Whole Premium. The Make-Whole Premiums when due pursuant to the terms of hereof; and

2.5 Payments; Application of Payments.
(a) All payments (including prepayments) to be made by Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made in immediately available funds in U.S. Dollars, without setoff or counterclaim, before 12:00 p.m. Pacific time on the date when due. Payments of principal and/or interest received after 12:00 p.m. Pacific time are considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day. When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment shall be due the next Business Day, and additional fees or interest, as applicable, shall continue to accrue until paid.
(b) Borrower shall have no right to specify the order or the accounts to which Bank shall allocate or apply any payments required to be made by Borrower to Bank or otherwise received by Bank under this Agreement when any such allocation or application is not specified elsewhere in this Agreement.

4 CREATION OF SECURITY INTEREST
4.1 Grant of Security Interest. Borrower hereby grants Bank, to secure the payment and performance in full of all of the Obligations, a continuing security interest in, and pledges to Bank, the Collateral, wherever located, whether now owned or hereafter acquired or arising, and all proceeds and products thereof. The grant of security interest and pledge by Borrower contained herein is without limitation on the security interests and Liens granted by Borrower under any other Loan Documents and without limitation on the security interests and Liens granted by Borrower under the Prior Agreement, which security interests and Liens granted under the Prior Agreement shall continue, uninterrupted, as amended and restated by this Agreement.
Borrower acknowledges that it previously has entered, and/or may in the future enter, into Bank Services Agreements with Bank. Regardless of the terms of any Bank Services Agreement, Borrower agrees that any amounts Borrower owes Bank thereunder shall be deemed to be Obligations hereunder and that it is the intent of Borrower and Bank to have all such Obligations secured by the first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral granted herein (subject only to Permitted Liens that, pursuant to the terms hereof, are allowed to have superior priority to Bank’s Lien in this Agreement).
If this Agreement is terminated, Bank’s Lien in the Collateral shall continue until the Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) are satisfied in full, and at such time, Bank shall, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, terminate its security interest in the Collateral and all rights therein shall revert to Borrower. In the event (x) all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations), except for Bank Services, are satisfied in full, and (y) this Agreement is terminated, Bank shall terminate the security interest granted herein upon Borrower providing cash collateral acceptable to Bank in its good faith business judgment for Bank Services, if any. In the event such Bank Services consist of outstanding Letters of Credit, Borrower shall provide to Bank cash collateral in an amount equal to 110% of the Dollar Equivalent of the face amount of all such Letters of Credit plus all interest, fees, and costs due or to become due in connection therewith (as estimated by Bank in its good faith business judgment), to secure all of the Obligations relating to such Letters of Credit.
4.2 Cash Collateral. If, as determined by Bank in its sole discretion, (a) upon disclosure of the ReCharge Clinical Trial results Borrower does not meet the Primary Clinical Endpoints of its ReCharge Clinical Trial or (b) the ReCharge Clinical Trial results are not fully disclosed to the public prior to February 15, 2013, then, within three (3) Business Days after the earlier of such disclosure or February 15, 2013, Borrower shall provide cash to Bank in an amount equal to the lesser of $7,500,000 or the outstanding principal balance of Term Loan 2012 (the “Initial Cash Collateralization”, for Bank to hold as part of the Collateral in an account maintained at Bank with respect to which Borrower’s access shall be restricted. In the event Bank has made Tranche B and Borrower does not receive (and provide Bank with such evidence of such receipt as Bank shall reasonably request), after April 1, 2012 and on or before April 30, 2013, aggregate gross proceeds from the issuance by Borrower of its common and/or preferred stock of at least $30,000,000, then on May 1, 2013 Borrower shall provide cash to Bank in an amount equal to (i) the lesser of $15,000,000 or the outstanding principal balance of Term Loan 2012, less (ii) the amount of cash provided to and held by Bank pursuant to the Initial Cash Collateralization, for Bank to hold as part of the Collateral in an account maintained at Bank with respect to which Borrower’s access shall be restricted. Borrower shall have no right to withdraw, transfer, direct or otherwise have access to the funds in such account(s) until the Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) are satisfied in full. Without limitation on Section 4.1 hereof, Borrower grants to Bank a security interest in such account(s) and all funds therein to secure the payment and performance of the Obligations. Borrower agrees to complete and execute any documents that Bank shall require in its good faith business judgment in order to establish and maintain such account(s).
4.3 Priority of Security Interest. Borrower represents, warrants, and covenants that the security interest granted herein is and shall at all times continue to be a first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral (subject only to Permitted Liens that, pursuant to the terms hereof, are allowed to have superior priority to Bank’s Lien under this Agreement). If Borrower shall acquire a commercial tort claim, Borrower shall promptly notify Bank in a writing signed by Borrower of the general details thereof and grant to Bank in such writing a security interest therein and in the proceeds thereof, all upon the terms of this Agreement, with such writing to be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Bank.
4.4 Authorization to File Financing Statements. Borrower hereby authorizes Bank to file financing statements, without notice to Borrower, with all appropriate jurisdictions to perfect or protect Bank’s interest or rights hereunder, including a notice that any disposition of the Collateral (other than a disposition permitted under Section 7.1), by either Borrower or any other Person, shall be deemed to violate the rights of Bank under the Code.

Borrower has not violated any laws, ordinances or rules, the violation of which could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on its business.

5.11 Full Disclosure. No written representation, warranty or other statement of Borrower in any certificate or written statement given to Bank, as of the date such representation, warranty, or other statement was made, taken together with all such written certificates and written statements given to Bank, contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact necessary to make the statements contained in the certificates or statements not misleading (it being recognized by Bank that the projections and forecasts provided by Borrower in good faith and based upon reasonable assumptions are not viewed as facts and that actual results during the period or periods covered by such projections and forecasts may differ from the projected or forecasted results).

6.8 Protection of Intellectual Property Rights.
(a) (i) Protect, defend and maintain the validity and enforceability of its Intellectual Property; (ii) promptly advise Bank in writing of material infringements of its Intellectual Property; and (iii) not allow any Intellectual Property material to Borrower’s business to be abandoned, forfeited or dedicated to the public without Bank’s written consent.
(b) Provide written notice to Bank within thirty (30) days of entering or becoming bound by any Restricted License (other than over-the-counter software that is commercially available to the public). Borrower shall take such steps as Bank requests to obtain the consent of, or waiver by, any person whose consent or waiver is necessary for (i) any Restricted License to be deemed “Collateral” and for Bank to have a security interest in it that might otherwise be restricted or prohibited by law or by the terms of any such Restricted License, whether now existing or entered into in the future, and (ii) Bank to have the ability in the event of a liquidation of any Collateral to dispose of such Collateral in accordance with Bank’s rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
6.9 Litigation Cooperation. From the date hereof and continuing through the termination of this Agreement, make available to Bank, upon reasonable notice and at reasonable times, without expense to Bank, Borrower and its officers, employees and agents and Borrower’s books and records, to the extent that Bank may deem them reasonably necessary to prosecute or defend any third-party suit or proceeding instituted by or against Bank with respect to any Collateral or relating to Borrower.
6.10 Additional Warrants. Concurrently herewith, Borrower shall provide Bank with a duly executed warrant to purchase 106,746 shares of the publicly traded common stock of Borrower, exercisable for ten years, at a price of $2.34 per share (the “Tranche A Warrant”). On the Funding Date for Tranche B, Borrower shall provide Bank with a duly executed warrant to purchase publicly traded common stock of Borrower, exercisable for ten years, at a price per share equal to the average closing price of Borrower’s publicly traded common stock for the 10 trading days immediately preceding such Funding Date, for a number of shares to be determined by dividing $250,000 by such price per share, and in the same form and substance as the Tranche A Warrant (the “Tranche B Warrant”).
6.11 Changes to Terms. Without limitation on any right that Bank would otherwise have to exercise rights and remedies (whether or not commercially reasonable) upon the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default, or to require changes (whether or not commercially reasonable) to the terms of Term Loan 2012 or this Agreement as a condition to forbearing from exercising such rights and remedies upon the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default; if Borrower’s annual operating budgets or annual financial projections, as approved by Borrower’s board of directors, are revised from the versions provided to Bank on February 24, 2012, Borrower shall agree, in writing, to any commercially reasonable changes to the terms of Term Loan 2012 or this Agreement that Bank shall request.
6.12 Access to Collateral; Books and Records. Allow Bank, or its agents, at reasonable times, on one (1) Business Day’s notice (provided no notice is required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing), to inspect the Collateral and audit and copy Borrower’s Books. The foregoing inspections and audits shall be at Borrower’s expense, and the charge therefor shall be $850 per person per day (or such higher amount as shall represent Bank’s then-current standard charge for the same), plus reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. In the event Borrower and Bank schedule an audit more than ten (10) days in advance, and Borrower cancels or seeks to reschedule the audit with less than ten (10) days written notice to Bank, then (without limiting any of Bank’s rights or remedies), Borrower shall pay Bank a fee of $1,000 plus any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Bank to compensate Bank for the anticipated costs and expenses of the cancellation or rescheduling.
6.13 Further Assurances. Execute any further instruments and take further action as Bank reasonably requests to perfect or continue Bank’s Lien in the Collateral or to effect the purposes of this Agreement. Deliver to Bank, within ten (10) days after the same are sent or received, copies of all correspondence, reports, documents and other filings with any Governmental Authority regarding compliance with or maintenance of Governmental Approvals or Requirements of Law or that could reasonably be expected to have a material effect on any of the Governmental Approvals or otherwise on the operations of Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries.

Directly or indirectly enter into or permit to exist any material transaction with any Affiliate of Borrower, except for transactions that are in the ordinary course of Borrower’s business, upon fair and reasonable terms that are no less favorable to Borrower than would be obtained in an arm’s length transaction with a non-affiliated Person.
7.9 Subordinated Debt. (a) Make or permit any payment on any Subordinated Debt, except under the terms of the subordination, intercreditor, or other similar agreement to which such Subordinated Debt is subject, or (b) amend any provision in any document relating to the Subordinated Debt which would increase the amount thereof or the amount of any permitted payments thereof or adversely affect the subordination thereof to Obligations owed to Bank.

Cure periods provided under this section shall not apply, among other things, to financial covenants or any other covenants set forth in clause (a) above;
8.3 Material Adverse Change. A Material Adverse Change occurs;

9 BANK’S RIGHTS AND REMEDIES
9.1 Rights and Remedies. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Bank may, without notice or demand, do any or all of the following:
(a) declare all Obligations immediately due and payable (but if an Event of Default described in Section 8.5 occurs all Obligations are immediately due and payable without any action by Bank);
(b) stop advancing money or extending credit for Borrower’s benefit under this Agreement or under any other agreement between Borrower and Bank;
(c) for any Letters of Credit, demand that Borrower (i) deposit cash with Bank in an amount equal to 110% of the Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate face amount of all Letters of Credit remaining undrawn (plus all interest, fees, and costs due or to become due in connection therewith (as estimated by Bank in its good faith business judgment)), to secure all of the Obligations relating to such Letters of Credit, as collateral security for the repayment of any future drawings under such Letters of Credit, and Borrower shall forthwith deposit and pay such amounts, and (ii) pay in advance all letter of credit fees scheduled to be paid or payable over the remaining term of any Letters of Credit;
(d) terminate any FX Contracts;
(e) verify the amount of, demand payment of and performance under, and collect any Accounts and General Intangibles, settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with Account Debtors for amounts on terms and in any order that Bank considers advisable, and notify any Person owing Borrower money of Bank’s security interest in such funds;
(f) make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or reasonable to protect the Collateral and/or its security interest in the Collateral. Borrower shall assemble the Collateral if Bank requests and make it available as Bank designates. Bank may enter premises where the Collateral is located, take and maintain possession of any part of the Collateral, and pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien which appears to be prior or superior to its security interest and pay all expenses incurred. Borrower grants Bank a license to enter and occupy any of its premises, without charge, to exercise any of Bank’s rights or remedies;
(g) apply to the Obligations any (i) balances and deposits of Borrower it holds, or (ii) any amount held by Bank owing to or for the credit or the account of Borrower;
(h) ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell the Collateral. Bank is hereby granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free license or other right to use, without charge, Borrower’s labels, Patents, Copyrights, mask works, rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, Trademarks, and advertising matter, or any similar property as it pertains to the Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Collateral and, in connection with Bank’s exercise of its rights under this Section, Borrower’s rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements inure to Bank’s benefit;
(i) place a “hold” on any account maintained with Bank and/or deliver a notice of exclusive control, any entitlement order, or other directions or instructions pursuant to any Control Agreement or similar agreements providing control of any Collateral;
(j) demand and receive possession of Borrower’s Books; and
(k) exercise all rights and remedies available to Bank under the Loan Documents or at law or equity, including all remedies provided under the Code (including disposal of the Collateral pursuant to the terms thereof).
9.2 Power of Attorney. Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Bank as its lawful attorney-in-fact, exercisable upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to: (a) endorse Borrower’s
name on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (b) sign Borrower’s name on any invoice or xxxx of lading for any Account or drafts against Account Debtors; (c) settle and adjust disputes and claims about the Accounts directly with Account Debtors, for amounts and on terms Bank determines reasonable; (d) make, settle, and adjust all claims under Borrower’s insurance policies; (e) pay, contest or settle any Lien, charge, encumbrance, security interest, and adverse claim in or to the Collateral, or any judgment based thereon, or otherwise take any action to terminate or discharge the same; and (f) transfer the Collateral into the name of Bank or a third party as the Code permits. Borrower hereby appoints Bank as its lawful attorney-in-fact to sign Borrower’s name on any documents necessary to perfect or continue the perfection of Bank’s security interest in the Collateral regardless of whether an Event of Default has occurred until all Obligations have been satisfied in full and Bank is under no further obligation to make Credit Extensions hereunder. Bank’s foregoing appointment as Borrower’s attorney in fact, and all of Bank’s rights and powers, coupled with an interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations have been fully repaid and performed and Bank’s obligation to provide Credit Extensions terminates.
9.3 Protective Payments. If Borrower fails to obtain the insurance called for by Section 6.5 or fails to pay any premium thereon or fails to pay any other amount which Borrower is obligated to pay under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, Bank may obtain such insurance or make such payment, and all amounts so paid by Bank are Bank Expenses and immediately due and payable, bearing interest at the then highest rate applicable to the Obligations, and secured by the Collateral. Bank will make reasonable efforts to provide Borrower with notice of Bank obtaining such insurance at the time it is obtained or within a reasonable time thereafter. No payments by Bank are deemed an agreement to make similar payments in the future or Bank’s waiver of any Event of Default.
9.4 Application of Payments and Proceeds Upon Default. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Bank may apply any funds in its possession, whether from Borrower account balances, payments, proceeds realized as the result of any collection of Accounts or other disposition of the Collateral, or otherwise, to the Obligations in such order as Bank shall determine in its sole discretion. Any surplus shall be paid to Borrower or other Persons legally entitled thereto; Borrower shall remain liable to Bank for any deficiency. If Bank, in its good faith business judgment, directly or indirectly enters into a deferred payment or other credit transaction with any purchaser at any sale of Collateral, Bank shall have the option, exercisable at any time, of either reducing the Obligations by the principal amount of the purchase price or deferring the reduction of the Obligations until the actual receipt by Bank of cash therefor.
9.5 Bank’s Liability for Collateral. So long as Bank complies with reasonable banking practices regarding the safekeeping of the Collateral in the possession or under the control of Bank, Bank shall not be liable or responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage to the Collateral; (c) any diminution in the value of the Collateral; or (d) any act or default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, or other Person. Borrower bears all risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral.
9.6 No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. Bank’s failure, at any time or times, to require strict performance by Borrower of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall not waive, affect, or diminish any right of Bank thereafter to demand strict performance and compliance herewith or therewith. No waiver hereunder shall be effective unless signed by the party granting the waiver and then is only effective for the specific instance and purpose for which it is given. Bank’s rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are cumulative. Bank has all rights and remedies provided under the Code, by law, or in equity. Bank’s exercise of one right or remedy is not an election and shall not preclude Bank from exercising any other remedy under this Agreement or other remedy available at law or in equity, and Bank’s waiver of any Event of Default is not a continuing waiver. Bank’s delay in exercising any remedy is not a waiver, election, or acquiescence.
9.7 Demand Waiver. Borrower waives demand, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees held by Bank on which Borrower is liable.
All notices, consents, requests, approvals, demands, or other communication by any party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document must be in writing and shall be deemed to have been validly served, given, or delivered: (a) upon the earlier of actual receipt and three (3) Business Days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first class, registered or certified mail return receipt requested, with proper postage prepaid; (b) upon transmission, when
sent by electronic mail or facsimile transmission; (c) one (1) Business Day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier with all charges prepaid; or (d) when delivered, if hand-delivered by messenger, all of which shall be addressed to the party to be notified and sent to the address, facsimile number, or email address indicated below. Bank or Borrower may change its mailing or electronic mail address or facsimile number by giving the other party written notice thereof in accordance with the terms of this Section 10.

11 CHOICE OF LAW, VENUE, JURY TRIAL WAIVER, AND JUDICIAL REFERENCE
California law governs the Loan Documents without regard to principles of conflicts of law.
